The former employee of a Spartanburg auto sales business is accused of breaking into and stealing batteries from cars at the lot.

Spartanburg County deputies said they were called to Bargain Auto Sales on William Jolley Drive when an employee realized seven cars were missing batteries.

Surveillance video showed a former employee on the property about 2 a.m., according to a sheriff's office report.

Deputies saw that man, 32-year-old Aaron Mauldin, walking along Asheville Highway nearby and went to talk to him. The report said Mauldin eventually admitted to breaking-into the cars, taking several batteries and then selling them as scrap for $66.

Mauldin told deputies that he did not have the proper tools to remove one of the batteries from the eight cars he had broken into, the report said.

Mauldin was charged with seven counts of petit larceny and eight counts of carbreaking. He is being held at the county jail on a $75,000 bond.
